: on the one hand, you have two cliches. one is, seeing is believing. and in this case, i don't think seeing is believing, if she's guilty of this brutal murder. i mean, just look at her. appearances can be deceiving, maybe that's the other cliche. when the prosecution rested in the capital murder trial of jodi arias, the defense argued that her life should be spared and it shouldn't be murder 1 wrap because the state had failed to prove premeditation. the prosecutor scoffed at that notion, pointing out that among other things, the defendant -- that pretty -- you know, sweet-looking, young lady there brought a gun and a knife to the poor man, travis alexander -- the victim's home. but what i don't understand was why she killed him so savagely. what the hell was going on in her mind, 27 knife wounds, slit throat, gunshot to the head and all the rest of it. she looks so innocent. >> like i said, appearances, obviously deceiving. what was it about jodi? what did my next guest see in her that is so disturbed them that they wanted them out of their home. jacob and holly medford are here. it wasn'

the mindless cliche. this really puts it all in perspective. but, obviously, no one gains any perspective because they're right back to their same view of sports immediately thereafter. i said, if we're really looking for perspective, a bit of it can be found. and i was trying to imply there that an aspect of this, a bit of perspective on a larger and more complex problem can be found in what whitlock said. >> but the way it was read was, okay, you're quoting someone else and you're kind of making a plea for gun control, but not in your own name and you only had 90 seconds. looking back, you had a lot of time to think about this. was it a bit of a busted play? could you have handled it better? >> i could have handled it better and i think given the amount of time that i had, i would have been better off just crafting my own short statement and kind of realizing that it could not have been as complete as what i wanted it to be. there's also, a little bit of inside baseball or football inside this case, too. but i tried three times to contact jason whitlock. there are any number of witnesse

. >> oh, and this latest decision to just kick the can, i hate to use the cliche, further down the road, axel neighbor is a former central banker in europe, also the head of ubs and he was absolutely in no doubt that what we are seeing in the u.s. in the political and economic process is dangerous. >> if you have the debt ceiling, the europeans will talk about how you can make that binding. in the u.s., the concern is much more whether you can lift it in time in order not to put too much break on the economy. now, the u.s. economy has bottomed out, it's coming back, and i think sooner or later the u.s. has to face the fiscal issue not just in the sense of delaying adjustment but really making a credible adjustment. >> this is very reminiscent of the conversations we were having a year ago about europe. from the outside it looked obvious, have to get your house in order, you know what the decisions are likely to be, you have to just do them. now i hear everybody in europe saying you know what you need to do, you just need to do it. >> they were particularly amazed at the latest decision
